molinari of google, glenn hutchins was made very smart decisions in technology and understands the role of technology companies in the global economy. jonathan marino has written extensively about the united states investment in science and what it has meant for us on a whole host of issues. we will sort of a conversation with drew faust. \ let me spend a minute talking about that. drew, i am particularly enthusiastic to have him here. she is a woman leader. we have been focused on women's leadership. she has been at harvard since 2007. before that she was at the university of pennsylvania for 25 years. her academic career has focused on the civil war and the american south. she has been a prominent historian. as the president of harvard, she is focused on ensuring that there is education opportunity for all, for insuring that harvard bring means adverse on every level and at harvard remains the place that is attracting the best in the united states regardless of background as well in the world. she has spoken eloquently about the role that harvard plays not only in insuring educational
and advance. it opens a number of possibilities for us. how can we use these digital technologies and learn from them to change education on our alone campus. what weighs will we see based on the experience of these mass courses. how can that transform in cambridge and boston. secondly, we see it as a way to get harvard ideas and harvard teaching out to a broader world and way to accumulate a lot of data that can be an extraordinary resource for anybody who like to use that material to ask questions about the nature of human learning and how it ought to be structured. on the point about spreading learning to the rest of the world, i have a very moving reaction to one bit of data. one of the pilot courses. when i was in india, i met with people in india who were wanting to interact with harvard. there is a need for engagement with our schools public health. we have enormous challenges in that area. i was talking to these individuals about what kind of courses we might involve them in. this online course that i described steele has overall more than 40,000 students and 9000 of them come from
in national efficiency that has been brought about by technology and the new fuel efficiency standards that were enacted by the bush administration and were increased by the obama administration. the report is not political in any way shape or form. it endorses things that are supported by the right in some cases and that are supported by people on the left. you cannot just take the parts that you like. you have to take the holistic approach, to maximize u.s. production and to reduce consumption partly by diversifying our transportation sector away from petroleum. the last thing i will say is that petroleum use in transportation is the pivot point of this entire problem. 70% of our use of petroleum in this country is for transportation. transportation is fueled about 93% of the time by petroleum. if you want to reduce the united states' dependence on imported petroleum and the related geopolitical issues, particularly in an issue when rising demand is creating a potential conflict for these resources, then you have to recognize transportation has to be diversified away from petroleum o
to make sure america leads the world in research and technology and clean energy. i want to put people back to work rebuilding our roads and our bridges and our schools. [applause] that's how we grow an economy. i want us to bring down our deficits, but i want to do it in a balanced, responsible way. and i want to reward -- i want a tax code that rewards businesses and manufacturers like detroit diesel right here, creating jobs right here in redford, right here in michigan, right here in the united states of america. [applause] that's where we need to go. that's the country we need to build. and when it comes to bringing manufacturing back to america -- that's why i'm here today. since 1938, detroit diesel has been turning out some of the best engines in the world. [applause] over all those years, generations of redford workers have walked through these doors. not just to punch a clock. not just to pick up a paycheck. not just to build an engine. but to build a middle-class life for their families; to earn a shot at the american dream. for seven and a half decades, through good times a
of facts about the impact of voter i.d. but having a 29 day registration deadline. do we think technology has changed enough and practices have changed enough that we can get rid of that 29-day deadline because that does stop people from casting a ballot? >> you're doing as good a job getting answers as i did. >> i want to talk to election administers and how they're doing this because they still have to deal with paper. i thought at some point that a 30-day requirement will be called unconstitutional. 10 or 15 years from now maybe. we will do everything at registration for everybody everywhere. >> look, we have same-day registration in ohio for five days of our early voting period, and there are examples of people who are registering -- it's currently being investigated in cuyahoga county -- addresses that are vacant homes and they are actually registering there and having ballots counted. i think that when you get into same-day registration voting, i can tell you in a swing state that is highly competitive that that is a place that you'll run into fraud. we are already running into it,
technology could go to the chinese. a.b. studdard of the hill is here. a.b., thank you g for joining us tonight. thirst a continuous cascade of tech failures. i feel this is solyndra at charge, but worse, because if this goes through, all of that intellectual property put into this battery storage-maker, that could possibly go to the chinese. what do you think? >> right. that's the argument that the critics are making, hoping that a committee of the treasury department within the obama administration will actually turn down the sale, pending a decision from a bankruptcy judge. this chinese company was working very hard to come to the rescue of this ailing company all along, and ended up buying it just a few days ago for $7 million more than the government put into it. and because this company is so active in the you say, there is a concern, because a-123 systems, battery technology has been used by the defense defendant and others, it's so widespread critics say it's hard to buy into this company and not be privy to that technology. that makes us, of course, you know, exposes us to the
challenges that we are facing on technological advances. that has created a situation where the engine of sustainable economic growth and center of the middle -- the good a middle- class jobs are not as plentiful as they once were. finding a way to get them back or at least find a new way to create the middle class jobs that are sustainable as a court challenge that we face as a country. i also want to say that, we should not get stuck -- in my view should not get stuck thinking we have to solve the whole problem right away. t -- 2% growth makes everything look worse. if you were to create the aggregate demand that would give confidence to small businesses to invest again and again construction and housing going, would get the people coming into the workforce and we would start to see reasonable growth, the challenges seem a lot more solvable. i think we often get lost a in the hard challenges of our long- term future economic growth when some of the short-term challenges are not that complicated. if we were to make the infrastructure investments that we need, if we were to do the kind
. get your kicks from that analyst meeting. and united technologies. cvs is the cheapest and best drugstore play p i would be willing to buying ahead of the meeting, particularly if you have a little fiscal cliff panic before thursday. which person's going to come on wednesday and create the buying opportunity for cvs? phillips 66 reminds uz house smart it was to break up the old conoco phillips and perhaps put some focus on how hess could be next. united technologies will give us aw fiscal cliff update and a sense of how aerospace is doing now that goodrich, a premium supplier to 'o'space, is part of the family. on friday scotts miracle grow. endless excuse making for missed quarters. can they explain the poor execution? i'll listen, but frankly i doubt it. also on friday we get november industrial production and capacity utilization numbers. did november really matter or was it all sandy? i think prices were stagnant. but i want to try to figure out whether the new boom in cars and homes could impact industrial production and capacity utilization no matter what. i'm trying to un
that technology has created more advanced ought mated factories and that has resulted in fewer jobs necessary to build products. there is no question about that and that is a negative in terms of job creation. but it's also positive in that we have seen a little bit of a trend, and we saw apple this week announce they were going to make one of their products in the united states. it was related to the economics underliing this. if you need fewer people to make the stuff, then the cost difficult rerble to make it here versus there i did minute shs then the argument is we can make it. number two there is a national advisory counsel and one of the areas of focus has been in additive manufacturing which is really an interesting area. over the next decade it has the potential to have much more personal liesed approach, more custo approaches to manufacturing that could result in more things being made here as opposed to being made other places. so it is a concern but people are more optimistic now than five years ago because some of this technology advancing actually is starting to be in some secto
's natural gas. specifically the technology radically transformed natural gas production something called hydraulic fracturing or fracking. the name is opaque but the goal is simple. tens of thousands of feet below the surface there are deposits of natural gas trapped up within giant rock formations. fracking lets energy companies drill down to release the gas. that process has fundamentally revolutionized america's energy economy in a few years. the average annual price of natural gas is less than half what it was in 2008. large swaths of the united states from colorado to texas to ohio to upup state new york have massive natural gas reserves making them right for fracking. rhetts rebel based on concerns about health and the safety of the process. those battles may decide the course of america's energy economy over the next century. i think there's a real mismatch between the amount of -- between the scale of the change happens in america right now because of the fracking boom and the amount of intense con stern nation, debate, and politics around the local level on the amount of coverag

much on tape, the old cassette tape idea to using the latest in digital technology, and we're very excited about this transition because that makes it faster, cheaper, more efficient to get good quality reading materials to people when they need it. the service, obviously, is designed for the government to be sure that people have equal collections and access to the materials and in the spirit of all the public libraries in the country, and we have over 15,000 libraries. we have more public libraries than mcdonald's, we have a chance with the service like this to be sure that everyone has a chance to be well-informed citizens, which, obviously, is most critical, but, also to enjoy the rewards of being able to read great novels and great literature and be part of the world around them. we call ourselves the talking book and braille library. we could probably be the talking book library in part because braille ask not as popular as it used to be. braille is expensive to produce. uses a lot of paper. it is a paper-based technology. familiar quotation, new edition came out in the last
in our country -- science, technology, engineering, and mathematical workers and our country. sometimes they are talking about skill gaps wenwhere there is not enough to restore connection between how we do worker training and skills that are open in particular areas. all three of those are important skill gaps or skill issues, but they do not take with them the same policy solutions, and as we move forward, i believe that places like cap and others can help us to define which issues on the policies that address them. i suggest that we will be strong as one we have the larger skills comeback. many people come from silicon valley and talk to us about the need for high skilled immigration, and i agree. we do need to do more on high skilled immigration. the president agrees. but it is is stronger case to make that to the american people if that is one component of the strategy. one, not just of a comprehensive immigration strategy, but one component of a larger skills strategy which also talks about how we can increase the number of skilled workers coming from our country, u.s. schools, u.

or israel getting the technology being able to reach the united states, this is the sort of classic paradigm. the stock of the sum of all fears which is nuclear terrorism. i don't know if you want to comment on what are the risks, what are the real risks of wmd terrorism? >> there are significant risks to the terrorism. we all know the risks in the nuclear bomb and the part of los angeles etc am i etc, but when you look at the chemical and biological, they're also very significant threats there. for instance, you can look at what happened in the world war ii. the japanese army dropped infected fleas and china with 50,000 people, kind of a biotech they killed 50,000 people. chemical weapons, world war i chemical weapons killed at least 90,000 people. and you have these terrorist groups in the middle east. al qaeda has tried very hard for years to develop wmd. probably the closest they came was a group of retired pakistani leaders, really the nuclear program who teamed up with al qaeda to try to help al qaeda to develop the wmd. luckily they were cracked down upon before things got too far dow
